In our midst there is a man of unusual character, personality, and ability, 
possessed with the understanding nature of a teacher and the firmness 
and decision of a soldier. Dr. George V. Irons, in the seven years that he 
has been with us, has come to exemplify the spirit of Howard College for 
which it has so long been noted and is so justly proud. 

He is, first of all, a teacher. Dr. Irons came to Howard as an instruc- 
tor in history in 1934. Despite his attachment to this department 
students in every field find a ready and obliging friend in him. His 
overflowing classes testify to the popularity of his varied and informing 

With his personal magnetism and genial cordiality, he has also a 
thorough background of learning. He received his A.B. and M.A. 
degrees at the University of Alabama, where he achieved unusual promi- 
nence in scholarship, athletics and the military. One of his most signal 
honors was his election to Phi Beta Kappa, a distinction enjoyed by only 
seven other athletes in the previous history of the institution. 

Upon completion of a monumental thesis in the field of southern 
history, he was awarded the Ph.D. degree by Duke University, and has 
since become recognized as one of the outstanding native authorities on 
the subject. 

Because of the commission which he holds in the Reserve Army 
Corps, and his thorough knowledge of military science, Dr. Irons may 
soon be called to service with the colors. ENTRE NOUS is glad of this 
opportunity to give recognition to this popular but retiring professor. 
We assure him that his friendship has been both a pleasure and an inspira- 
tion to us.

President of the College 

LL.B., LL.D. 

On the right as one enters Main Build- 
ing is located the office of the Presi- 
dent. Here, by the light that filter 
through the Venetian blinds on the 
windows, students are always welcome 
to bring their problems for discussion. 
For more than fifty years great men 
have occupied this room in the admin- 

istration of the affairs of Howard 

Today, a man occupies the office 
whom the students instinctively trust 
and admire. Major Harwell G. Davis 
possesses an unusual combination of 
qualities which causes him to be pecu- 
liarly fitted for his responsibility — the 
penetrating insight of a lawyer, the 
discipline of an army officer, the aca- 
demic keenness of a Phi Beta Kappa. 

Space will not permit even a cursory 
survey of the many improvements that 
have come to Howard College during 
his short tenure of office. The faculty 
has been strengthened, black ink sub- 
stituted for red in the account books, 
and, greatest of all, Howard has be- 
come as never before the hub of relig- 
ious activities in the state. The insti- 
tution has become truly a center of 
learning and culture. 

We are proud of our President, and 
we appreciate the new vitality he has 
brought the college. We sincerely be- 
lieve that his star is in the ascendency.

Dean of the College 

The highest academic office on the 
campus is held by a man whose strong 
sense of duty and natural love for 
learning has earned him a lasting place 
in the hearts of Howard students. A 
person of quiet dignity and lofty 
ideals, Dean P. P. Burns is possessed 
with the truly scholarly desire to learn 
for the pure joy of learning and to go 
still further to impart his knowledge 
to others. 

Perhaps better than any other man 
now living, Dean Burns represents the 
old Howard College of a few decades 
ago. His inexhaustible store of knowl- 
edge on a wide range of subjects is a 
continuous source of wonder to us all. 

The kind of dean who has, in com- 
forting small ways, made the rules of 
Howard fit the student rather than the 
student fit the rules. 

By the way he keeps up with and 
remembers students from the past 
years, we have the secure knowledge 
that after graduation we too shall be 
kept up with and remembered. 


Dean of Women 

The first person to give kindly ad- 
vice to bewildered freshmen girls, and a 
most important aid in helping seniors 
to adjust themselves to society after 
graduation, is Howard's capable and 
energetic Dean of Women — Mrs. I. R. 

Not only has she received training in 
some of the South's best educational 
institutions, including Auburn, Troy, 
and Peabody, but she has gone to the 
sidewalks of New York to do graduate 
study at Columbia University. Her 

Dean P. P. Burns 
A. M., Litt. D. 

teaching career includes experience at 
Auburn, Alabama, and Peabody . . . 
Her ability as a teacher and her de- 
votion to student affairs certainly war- 
rant the tremendous popularity she

RUHAMA BAPTIST CHURCH. Two blocks cast of the college on 
Underwood Avenue is this beautiful edifice. It is the recognized college 
church, and has been the scene of its graduation exercises for more than an 
half-century. Ruhania is one hundred and seventeen years old, and has the 
longest continuous history of any institution in Birmingham, possibly the 


MAIN BY MOONLIGHT. Since 1889 Old Main has stood on its solitary 
hill, beaten by wind and rain, and bathed by moonlight. The central build- 
ing of the quadrangle, it was erected in 1889, and now houses the adminis- 
trative offices, the auditorium, and several classrooms.

MONTAGUE HALL. Named for one of Howard's greatest presidents, Dr. 
Andrew Philip Montague, this building is located at the end of Sorority Row 
across the campus from Renfroe Hall. Here is located the college library, 
where students come to sate their hunger for knowledge, to read the pe- 
riodicals, perhaps to gossip with friends. 

SCIENCE HALL. On the western edge of the Campus, reared against the 
skyline, stands Science Hall, a brick veneer building Overlooking Sherman 
Oak and the from campus. lis many odors awaken memories of happy 

limns spem there — of Dr. Bakefield'a spicy, enlightening lectures, ut the busj 

hum of laboratories, the glare of table lamps as sunset lades. 

t I. 

One ot the most attractive features of 
Howard College is the large and ex- 
perienced faculty of which it can 
proudly boast. It is composed of 
graduates of outstanding medical 
schools, theological seminaries, fine 
arts academies, and advanced flying 
schools. Its members represent the 
best in American education. Many of 
the professors have degrees from large 
universities abroad, such as the Uni- 
versity of Paris, the Latin School of 
Rome, the National University of 
Mexico, and other well-known centers 
of learning, lending to the group a 
cosmopolitan character. 

It is not "apple polishing" which is 
responsible for the after-class chats of 
professors and students in Main and 
Riley Hall. The reason for these com- 
mon scenes, so unusual on many other 
campi, is the warm friendliness and 

winning personalities of the faculty. 
They are never too busy to stop and 
discuss that puzzling math problem or 
that unusual type of football forma- 

Certainly a conspicious feature of 
our teaching corps is their voluntary 
participation in religious activities on 
the campus. Some of the professors 
teach college Sunday School classes; 
members of the department of relig- 
ious education in particular are eagerly 
solicited by Birmingham churches as 
guest ministers. 

Although we may devise baffling 
questions and plan clever digressions on 
exam days, we are quite aware of the 
tremendously vital part our teachers 
play in our college careers. It is they 
who instill into our hearts and minds 
sound moral principles, who make us 
eager to know and to learn.

John Howard was born in a small 
northeast borough of London in 1726. 
He died near Kherson, in southern Rus- 
sia, in the winter of 1790. Thus we 
have the beginning and the end of the 
life of a great man. Who can supply 
the interim? Certainly we cannot in 
the space of a few short sentences tell 
of the sacrifices, the hardships, the pri- 
vations he experienced in fulfilling 
what he regarded as his Christian duty. 

The son of a wealthy family, John 
Howard was revolted by the social 
conditions of his time. With a pas- 
sionate zeal for reform, he devoted his 
entire life and fortune to the allevia- 
tion of human misery. He traveled 
from one end of Europe to the other, 
studying conditions in prisons and hos- 
pitals, helping the sick and afflicted 
without regard for race or creed. 

Never once did he ask pay for his 
work, or credit for his accomplish- 
ments. When told that a fund was 
being raised with which to erect a me- 

morial to himself, he insisted that the 
money be used instead for charity. He 
never once posed for a painter or 
sculptor. The statues which stand to 
his memory in St. Paul's Cathedral and 
at Bedford were made from plastic 
casts after his death. 

For almost a century this institution 
has reverently borne the name of this 
great Christian leader. Our prayer is 
that in its greatness, Howard College 
will not forget the truly noble prin- 
ciples to which its founders dedicated

o ■* % 

The President of the Class of '41 was none 
other than Theo Emcns, an economic major 
and a native of Birmingham. A member of 
Sigma Nu Fraternity, Theo is a quiet but 
genial person who acquits himself of his re- 
sponsibilities with thoroughness and dispatch. 
Vice Presidency of the class devolved upon 
the shoulders of Grady Hutchinson, a minis- 


Long befcre Hitler became a synonym for 
Satan, blit/kreigs were an old thing to Main 
and Sherman Oak, and the year of 1937 
brought one of violent proportions. In the fall 
of that year, thousands and thousands of 
freshmen descended ruthlessly on the campus, 
past the arch old arch, around the gym, and 
through Main. The college made a feverish 
attempt to defend itself, but before dark the 

terial student who was also elected Most Popu- 
lar Boy and Most Friendly Boy in campus polls. 
The other two offices arc held by two Delta 
Zetas, Jane Purser Brown, Treasurer, and 
Margaret Sue Denton, Secretary. The former 
became a Mrs. during the past year; the latter 
is reported by The Crimson to be open-minded 
to the matter. 


Freshman Occupation had become an acknowl- 
edged fact. 

Since the Frosh had no structive ideas, de 
or con, things went on as they had for cen- 
turnies, although war prices prevailed in the 
treasurer's office, and the specie of meat used 
in Co-Op stew was never determined. 

The new semester blew open with a deluge 
of rushing parties, registering, hot fudge sun- 


das, and plaster falling from the Phi Nu ceil- 
ing. At the Freshman Reception at Smith 
Hall, the new initiates were made painfully 
aware of their lowly state by the upperclass- 
men; the seniors made a dash for the punch 
tables, followed by starving sophomores and 
jeering juniors .... Well, the Frosh did have 
the unmolested pleasure of meeting the faculty. 

Freshmen rapidly fell in love with Dr. 
Dawson and studied the Bible with diligence. 
Dr. Bohannon's Psych was remarkably well at- 
tended, and his hypnotic demonstrations were a 
fascinating show to every student present. He 
hypnotized such notables as Lillian Albright, 
Margaret Lindon, and Sara Cofield, one or 
more of whom are probably still in a trance. 

Following the example of those who had 
gone before them, they were most cooperative 
in all school functions. So much so that Stunt 
Night was called off for the first time in his- 
tory, because of lack of interest. 

The political pot began to boil and the bal- 
lots were sticky with candy and dirty with 
campaign politics. Harrell Vance and Morgan 
Peoples were elected Editor and Business Man- 
ager of the Bull Pup by the simple expedient of 
threatening dire disaster to all dissenters. 

Sophomores at last, members of the Class of 
1941 were rather proud of themselves when in 
September they returned to the campus and 
were among the first to be asked to sign a 
petition to remove the expensive, expansive, 
exposive arch. This was followed shortly by 
a civil war, fer and agin the Administration. 
No good came of it, but the students did get 
two hilarious cuts on account of it. The an- 
nual Howard-Southern Parade came and went, 
but left the Sophs undiscouraged: After all, 
Howard won the year before. 

Eddie Welch was the cutest thing you ever 
saw initiated into the H Club. Also acclaimed 
in chapel were Cooter Watkins, Charlie Doug- 
las, Jack Moore, Gordon Golson, Kenny Mor- 
gan, and Sam Goldman. The political clique 
formed again and Jack Beveritt was sworn in 
as treasurer, and Harry Tcel talked his way 
into the vice presidency. All were ill from 
campaign candy and lemonade, but were cured 
by final exams. Came graduation again, and 
the news that Major Davis would be the 
President of the College the next year and 
thence on, and they met him and liked him 

The next fall a wiser and less sophisticated 
group of juniors gathered to hear Major Davis' 
opening address. Eddie Welch was president 
of the class, Jappic Bryant President ot the 
Women's Student Government, and Wyatt 
Pope, who by this time was at last a senior, 
was President (if the Student Body, 

Christmas came, followed by a beeg snow 
when all were released from school because it 
was too wet and nasty to try to get to the 
campus. Students spent the week end playing 
in the wet, unhealthy snow and had a gleeful 
time. People such as Lorene Alsbrooks are to 
be commended for wading in it to school the 
first day. 

The snow melted, the earth warmed, small 
flowers burst into bloom on the front campus. 
May Day came, dreary and cloudy. However, 
no rain fell and Hypatia, pure and white, 
pinned the longed-for gold corsages on Martha 
Merck, Jane Purser Brown, Mary Frances 
Vaughn, Abilane Knight, Sara Ruth Young, 
Jane Doran, and Sara Cofield, all of whom 
cried copiously. Trident, highest men's honor 
society, tapped John Latham, Robert Arm- 
strong, Charles Loveless, Stewart Winton, and 
Sam Granade before a loudly cheering throng 
in chapel. 

Seniors at last, the members of the class 
were more sober, less inclined to frolic, very 
attentive to their work and confronting under- 
classmen with a thoughtful look. The year 
opened as usual with some more Phi Mu plas- 
ter falling, and the arch being conspiciously 
missing. Christmas came again and the Glee 
Club sang carols in cozy chapel. Collection 
was taken up for Beatrice's Christmas package, 
and Dr. Chapman bought a new car with 
which he ran over a cow. 

Sam Brown announced that he got married 
Thanksgiving and so joined the ranks of the 
many ministers who were married. Co-eds 
were becoming afraid to flirt with a minis- 
terial student for fear of learning that he was 
married. Ulman Moss was still single at the 
time of this writing, but Jack Akin was al- 
most gone. Marion Cowden has already taken 
the fatal step, and Mary Emily Wishart and 
Helen Roberts will do so shortly .... 

This class history could easily be made into 
several large volumes. It could dwell for a 
long time upon personalities such as Helen 
Sharbutt, pretty but uneffected — the student 
body and certain junior are going to miss her 
terribly, especially the junior; John Black- 
shear, surrealist artist, and leader in the revo- 
lution of Renfroe Hall .... Kenny ("Cord- 
wood") Morgan, captain of the football team 
and outstanding athletes in all sports. 

As this Senior Class prepares to pass out 
through the portals of old Howard College, 
the closing words of a great pioneer indus- 
trialist, speaking for a passing generation, 
comes back to a none-too-thoughtful group of 
boys and girls: "We, who arc about to die, 
salute you . . . ." They, who are about to live, 
salute those who have done so much to shape 
then' college careers.

Profet«or » illiAm E. Bohannon 

"To live in the hearts we leave behind, 
Is not to die." 

The passing of Dr. William E. Bo- 
hannon, beloved member of the fac- 
ulty of Howard College, is hereby 
commemorated by his many friends 
and former students. With his death, 
the college lost one of its most loyal 
supporters, the state educational sys- 
tem one of its greatest pioneers. 

Dr. Bohannon was for twenty-one 
years a dynamic figure in the Depart- 
ment of Education. He is perhaps 
most noted for the direction which he 
gave the Summer School during its 
phenomenal growth of the early 

In his chosen field he won much 
recognition, both at home and abroad. 
His biographical sketch appears in 
Who's Who in America, Who's Who in 
the South, Who's Who in Education. 
In regard to his ability as a teacher, 
Town and Country Review, of Lon- 
don, several years ago remarked, "The 
point that his knowledge of psychology 
is practical as well as academic is ex- 
emplified by Professor Bohannon's 
popularity with Howard students." 

We find difficulty in translating 
into mere words the volume of senti- 
ments which we feel at his passing. We 
can only admire him for what he was.

In .in "all-out" attempt to effect some new and 
interesting changes, we present the following class 
sections in an arrangement which we hope 'will 
meet with your approval. We have utilized every 
available inch of space in .\n attempt to capture 
more fully the spirit of the college year. Too, we 
made the effort with the risk of offending the 

conservative elements which we have with us 


It you do not like the new arrangement, just 
tear off the roof of your house and sent it (or i 
reasonable facsimile) to the staff, and we will be 
glad to entertain your suggestions.

When the Juniors returned to the campus last 
tall, they found that not only were Dr. Sarosi 
and the arch gone, but that their president-elect 
had abdicated also. An election was called at 
once, and three months later the class met and 
elected the following officers: Donald Adccck, 
president; Anne Scannelly, vice president; Mar- 
jorie Holcomb, treasurer; and Ann Weaver, sec- 

Adcock, a native of Gadsden, is president of 

Lambda Chi Alpha, and spends most of his day- 
light hours in the physics lab. Anne Scannellv, 
an aspiring journalist, might be majoring in Eng- 
lish, were it not for the fact that Greek and 
Latin are the same as English to her. Marge was 
twice elected "Miss Howard", is president of Phi 
Mu, and, according to most of the male popula- 
tion, is the best looking girl on this or any other 
campus. Miss Weaver is from Talladega, and 
has distinguished herself as a leader in the religious- 
letter organizations since she came to Howard.

Prexy Carey Gwin, a typical sophomore, is a 
member of Pi Kappa Phi and has lately thrown 
his hat in the ring as a political aspirant. The 
vice presidency is held by a member of the fairer 
sex, Lois Murphree, who was rushed by several 

fraternities before Phi Mu pledged her. Ray 
Atchison, a quiet and studious Shelby County 
youth, assumed responsibility for the funds of the 
class. Miss Ann Gatlin, who won fifth place in 
the beauty section, was honored with the orfice 
of secretary.

Through a coup d'etat executed by the Iron 
Guardists (freshmen football players), Crayton 
McEachern was elected class president. Mac is a 
resident of Rcnfroc, works hard, plays hard, and 
manages to sandwich in quite a little studying be- 
tween. Vice President is Ed Harris, a member 

of Pi K A and a very popular frosh, especially 
with the ladies. Secretary Betty Prince and 
Treasurer John Pittman complete the administra- 
tive officers of the class. Betty we remember as 
the genial young lady who operates the switch- 
board up in Main; Pittman is the blond ace on 
the Town Boys' basketball quint.

It was a bright and sassy crow ot 
freshmen chat trooped up the stairs 
of old Causey Gym one bright Sep- 
tember morning to affirm their in- 
tentions of becoming students in 
this institution of higher [earning. 
The waxed floor of the gym shone 
brightly, and the freshmen were 
half afraid to approach the perspir- 
ing faculty members who sat be- 
hind tables labeled variously, "Eng- 
lish, biology, history," and so on 
throughout the curriculum. Led by 
such brave men as Robert Teel, Ira 
Gunn, and Jimmy Dunaway, the 
tedious task was finally commenced, 
and out of whirlpool of confusion 
there gradually appeared certain 
hazy patterns. Only after consid- 
erable difficulty and a visit to the 
treasurer's office was the opera- 
tions completed. 

So began the college career of 
some two hundred students, part of 
whose pictures appear en the pages 
paralleling this account. The next 
few months were eventful ones, 
happy ones, although they did not 
realize it at the time. Football 
players such as Lewis Norris, the 
Riddle brothers, David Drake, 
Woodrow Taylor, Tex Sibley, Carl 
Folds, Kenny Baker, Durwocd Wil- 
liamson, and Fats Hause, became 
lean scrimmaging the varsity on 
Berry Field under Coach Jim's di- 
rections. After supper, the second 
floor boys of Renfroe Hall pitched 
horseshoes in the blazing sunset be- 
side the old Co-Op on Underwood 

The boys by this time had been 
shorn of their locks, and the girls, 
too, bore marks of their lowly 
rank. Borum Bishop, Charles and 
Jones Niager, Gcrow Hodges, and 
Charles Quarles were among the 
most handsome of those whose hair 
had been clipped, and their small 
rat caps failed to conceal their

bald heads. Aside from having to 
mail letters and .it infrequent in- 
tervals shine shoes, the freshmen 

received verv tew Other luimil.uions 
from tlieir superiors-in-rank. 

One cool night in October, the 
frosh .til gathered at Legion Field 
to witness their first football game 
played by their alma mater. It was 
i thrilling game. The Howard- 
Wood law n High band played some 
stirring pieces, the visibility was 
perfect .... boy! the way T. A. 
\\ indium and Otis Hardy could 
handle those passes! A few weeks 
previously the Frosh, led by Cap- 
tain Zobrosky, gave the Birming- 
ham-Southern yearlings a thorough 
whipping on the same scene. 

After the football season came to 
an abrupt end, the students settled 
back to the usual routine, broken 
only on Thursday by the appear- 
ance of the Crimson and the gos- 
sip column. Christmas came, and 
everyone went home except a hand- 
ful of brave souls who remained 
in the dormitory while working 
downtown. As soon as the campus 
was reoccupied, there was a flurry 
of studying fcr semester examina- 
tions, a mad rush to the library to 
complete term papers for Doctors 
Bohannon, Chapman, Irons, and 
those other factuly members who 
regarded term papers as a good 
means of "correlating and integrat- 
ing the course." 

In the spring elections, Billy Rid- 
dle was elected Editor of the Bull- 
pup, defeating Florrie Thompson, 
who was ably assisted in her cam- 
paign by her manager, George New- 
man, now at West Point. 

In the countless cities and towns, 
villages and hamlets ever the state, 
the members of the class of 1942 
troliced and sang away the sum- 
mer months, until early in Septem- 
ber the exodus back to East Lake 
began once more. Tanned by the 
sun and wind, filled with renewed 
energy, the class settled down after 
the usual preliminaries to another 
year of work.

[43 ] 

t It 

I [ere began .1 new chapter in the 
lives of .1 group of college students. 
It was .1 full life, a rich, abundant, 
happy life: long hours spent in the 
»p with the gang; the thud of 
cleated shoe striking on leather, the 
spiral flight of the oval into azure 
sk\ ; the songs of boys returning 
from .in evening at the Opera 1 louse 
echoing d w n Seventy - Seventh 
Street; the merry conversations 
carried on by students across the 
aisles of the Fast Lake street cars. 

The sophs of 1939-40 had plenty 
cf fun, but they accomplished much 
in other directions also. When the 
close of school approached once 
more, it found Billy Riddle, now a 
recognized campus leader, as editor- 
elect of the college weekly; Arlie 
Allen, retiring president of the class, 
n. w editor-elect of the Annual; and 
Loronzo Reeves, of Pi K A, presi- 
dent-elect of the Junior Class. 
When the F.NTRE NOUS came 
out, the beauty section featured 
Dot Hell, Vivian Norton, Beatrice 
Michael, and Marjorie Holcomb. 

Their numbers somewhat re- 
duced, the new Junior Class re- 
turned to the campus in the fall to 
begin ence more the very serious 
business of gaining an education. 
The football season during Coach 
White's premier year was only a me- 
diocre one because of injuries — w in- 
ning a few, losing a few, but always 
fighting with true bulldog tenacity. 
Christmas has come and gone, 
the exam papers have been graded 
and the grades recorded; the buds 
on Sherman Oak have swelled and 
are about to bring forth leaves; sosn 
campaign talk and campaign smoke 
w ill fill the atmosphere. 

The history of this class might 
be the history of any of the many 
classes that have entered Howard 
College. Much more space could 
be devoted to describing the per- 
sonalities, the abilities, the potential 
possibilities of this group. The 
( entennial Class of 1942 is cer- 
tainly not a mediocre one.

It our imagination were but strong 
enough, and sophistications not too 
compelling, we might imagine that 

this group of handsome sophs had 
.1 spirit to speak tor them; but 
since Ye Ed cannot commune with 
spirits, he was forced to resort to 
the old journalistic method of con- 
juring up a few disconnected re- 
marks out cf a clear sky. 

This class of 1943 is a very te- 
nacious one. Without reopening the 
discussion on spirts, we might say 
that it must have had a guardian 
angel to keep it from harm, in view 
of the repeated aggressions of the 
upperclassmen. Back in 193 9, a 
boisterous throng of freshmen 
scampered through Main, like hun- 
dreds of little rats, rampant and tu- 
multous. Pittman Henry, president 
and chairman of the committee to 
keep Renfroe Hall in condition, was 
their natural leader. Elected to as- 
sist the very popular and highly 
esteemed Henry, were Ray Atchi- 
son, Gloria Root, and Wcodrow 
Wilson. Thomas Bryant, lately a 
member of that infamous but truly 
essential organization, the Student 
Publications Board, was elected to 
the Student Senate. 

Among that year's Freshmen was 
Major Harwell G. Davis, who soon 
proved to be such a regular fellow 
that he was excused from much of 
the usual attention given freshmen 
by upperclassmen. 

At the Freshman Reception, many 
interesting characters turned up in 
the general mill of novices: Sey- 
mour Wilkes, soon to find favor 
among the Sigma Nus, and to form 
almost equally binding ties with 
Delta Zcta; Kermit Thomas, des- 
tined to become the light in the 
life of a certain transfer student 
from Tuscumbia; Haskew Page, the 
pride of Castleberry, Alabama, and 
(to quote him), "the best passer 
that ever came on Berry Field";

and John Richardson, long and 

rangy football player from some 

unspellable town in South Alabama. 

The usual highlight ot the year 

v. .is the annual bonfire before the 
Howard-Southern game. The frosh 
worked hard, night after night, to 
gather material tor the tire. Trucks 
canvassed back alleys, dumps, and 
rear entrances of large mercantile 
houses, gathering old packing cases, 
trash, and discarded automobile 
lues. The whole was piled in a 
conglomerate mass in the middle of 
the football field, and a crew of 
eight or ten boys were stationed to 
guard it and the campus from sa- 
botage by some roaming Panther. 

About midnight on the eve of 
Homecoming Day, the enemy 
struck. The dormitory was aroused 
by the old familiar alarm from the 
boys on the front campus: "South- 
ern's on the campus!" 

The freshmen rushed out in the 
open, but too late. A streak of 
flames was beginning to shoot up 
in the sky back of Main, and in a 
tew minutes the entire eastern ho- 
rizon was aglow. Numb and ex- 
hausted, they could do little but 
stare and mutter. 

With the crackling of the flames, 
the temper of the crowd became 
more aroused. A truck was backed 
up to the old brick arch, a militant 
crowd of frosh began getting into 
the body, carrying paint buckets. 
Standing on a scap box, Wyatt 
Pope persuaded them not to under- 
take any reprisals, and the large 
expeditionary force first contem- 
plated was forgotten. 

A Student Senate meeting was 
held by light of the roaring inferno, 
money was appropriated with which 
to charter a truck, brigade of fresh- 
men were sent out to begin anew 
the work so recently frustrated. 
When the cold light of dawn shone 
on the frosty grass of Berry Field,

the new bout ire w .is beginning to 
appear in the ashes of the old. 

When the night of the big cele- 
bration finally came, there, tower- 
ing high on the tootb.ill field, was 
tbeir bonfire. For the last time, 
a bonfire burned on the eve of a 
game with Southern, and cheers 
swelled from the throngs of spec- 
tators .is the Panther went up in 

Winter came, dreary and bleak, 
with only the snow in February to 
brighten things up. Freshmen 
studied and observed, and learned 
more and more of the ways of up- 
perclassmen. Then came the sea- 
son of soap b::\ orators, for in the 
spring Howard College students' 
minds lightly turned to thoughts of 
politics. Three freshman co-eds, 
Mary Katherine Abercrombie, Mary 
Louise Shirley, and Gloria Root, 
made their debut on the political 
stage. After a heated contest and 
run-off election, the latter was 
elected to the office of Editor of 
the Bullpup. 

With a sigh of relief, the fresh- 
men completed their exams and 
realized that at long-last they had 
passed through another stage of 
metamorphosis, ;:nd were at last 
sophomores (provided they passed). 

Time seemed to take wings and 
fly. Summer came to an abrupt 
end, and the scphomores once more 
strolled about the campus in the 
crisp autumn air. Some of their 
number had dropped out to become 
absorbed into industry; others en- 
tered upon the even more serious 
enterprise of marriage. As a whole, 
the class held together well. 

The class had given early indi- 
cations of leadership, which now 
were confirmed in the persons of 
Doris Walls, assistant editor of 
1 N 1 RE NOUS, and James Wade, 
business manager of the Crimson. 
The former had already won some

acclaim .is editor >t the freshman 
edition of the paper, which same 
lacked only one point oi winning 
fust place. Wade had also won 
recognition .is business manager of 
the Hiil I pup. 

The class contained both mascu- 
line and feminine beauty. Ruby 
Nelle Collins and Marge I lolcomb, 
the latter now become a junior, 
graced the beauty section of the 
Annual during their freshman year; 
tins has become an annual affair 
with the fair Marjorie (excuse pun, 
please). Masculine beauty mani- 
fested itself in the person of Robert 
Taylor, elected last fall in a campus 
poll as "Most I [andsome Boy." 

As another election appears on 
the horizon, the chances of sopho- 
mores achieving prominence is 
quite bright. The class has a much 
better than fair chance to be a 
record class. At registration time it 
was the largest in school history, 
but this is no great honor in a col- 
lege expanding as rapidly as How- 

Certainly this class represents i 
good cross section of the student 
bedy. It contains some exception- 
ally smart students, such as Grace 
1 /ell, Dons Godwin, Vivian Gibbs, 
and Ray Atchison. It contains 
some excellent athletes, such as Earl 

Gartman, Buddy Payne, and Em- 

mctt Templeton. And it contains 
people with excellent promise of 
service to society: Mabry I.unce- 
ford, J. M. Dcason, Odell Bennett, 
.\ni\ Vivian I.angley . . . 

The word "sophomore," when 
traced to its derivative, means "one 
who knows everything." The pres- 
ent class, like the sophists of old, 
have in the span of one short year 
in college, accumulated a vast store 
ol knowledge, which they dissemi- 
nate generously to all freshmen. 
They stand in the lobby of Main, 
suave, sophisticated, wise . . .

Tliis .it tempt to write an account 
of the Freshman Class is made with 
in advance apology. No doubt if 
we knew all about the seed, we 
might predict the character of the 
tree, but we can hardly deliver much 
of a discourse or make any propheev 
concerning a seed which we have 
had such a short time to study. 
Therefore, because of the shortness 
of its history, it would be futile for 
the wisest seer or the most honored 
home-town prophet to attempt to 
reveal its destinies. But, assuming 
that the Class of '44 possesses ordi- 
nary intelligence, and considering 
the inexorable laws relating to the 
repetitions of history, we will haz- 
ard the guess that this class will not 
fail to follow in the footsteps of 
its predecessors and continue filling 
the pages of the history of Howard 
College with glerious deeds and 

We propose to present only a 
preamble of the history of the class. 
For the present we must be content 
with only a few of its minor ac- 
complishments during the first few 
months of the school year. 

How insignificant they felt en 
registration day, with all the upper- 
classmen eyeing them querulously 
and mocking them with the degrad- 
ing appellation of "rats"! With 
the profound knowledge and un- 
tiring assistance of a corps of soph- 
omores, the Freshics at last com- 
pleted their schedules, and with 
brave hearts faced the mysteries of 
the future. Many of their fears 
were dispelled, however, by a bri- 
gade of kindly B.S.U. workers. 

Having unsuccessfully completed 
enrolling, everyone jammed Ken-

froe Hall for Major's Welcoming 
Address, not to mention the food. 
All of the newcomers wore having 
i swell time until some smart soph 
told Bill Solley that the meals were 
not that good all the time. 

Upon completion of the fresh- 
man tests the next day, Dr. Love- 
gren came to the conclusion that 
the mental capacities of the Fresh- 
man Class were about as limited as 
were those who had come before 
them. However, when the faculty 
discovered such master minds as 
Carolyn Gates, Franklin Parker, 
George Swcpc, Mary Johnson, Clar- 
ence Slaughter, and Ross Jones, it 
was affirmed that theirs would be 
the outstanding class in the history 
of Howard College. 

After a social spree that would 
make Brenda and Cobina envious, 
the frosh settled down to their daily 
routine, not having changed their 
schedules more than twelve times 
cr taken more than half their cuts. 

Life was gay with such things to 
break the monotony as Betty Coop- 
er's bright sayings, Vance (Gable) 
Vernon's looks, Gladys Weese's and 
Helen Holtam's giggles, and Dr. 
Wilcox's absence from class which 
never occurred (but what a relief 
it would have been!). Then there 
was Abe Epsman, who always got 
his hair cut on Friday afternoon 
because he wanted to look nice over 
the week-end, and Mack Guin, who 
wore loud sox to class to keep his 
feet from going to sleep. 

With the truly democratic spirit 
that the officers of the class should 
be chosen by the future football 
stars, everyone met in Main to voice 
his approval of any candidate the 
team wished to have elected. 
Craytcn McEachern was elected 
President. In case of assassination,

impeachment, or laryngitis, Ed. 

Harris was to take His place. Betty 
Prince charming was chosen Secre- 
tary. It was also decided that John 
Pittman should have the honor of 
taking care of any surplus money 
that might accumulate, while El- 
wood Burks was elected to the Stu- 
dent Senate. 

Acting as an inspiration for the 
Varsity, the Erosh team made his- 
tory. With such players as Milton 
Hodges, James Weaver, Herrin Ha- 
good, John Townsend, Andy 
Vaughn, and Ed Snead, Howard 
will continue to be victorious. 
Probably the proudest achievement 
of the Bullpups was a decisive whip- 
ping given to Auburn's highly 
touted Tiger Cubs at Legion Eield 
before a near-capacity crowd. The 
game was played for the benefit of 
the Crippled Children's Clinic and 
will become an annual event. 

At the Beauty Parade sponsored 
by the Annual, the freshmen had a 
field day. Helen Galloway, Mar- 
garet Ward, Juanita Milam, Kath- 
lynn Parson, Jane Cook, Mary Vir- 
ginia Gregory, and Gladys Weese 
graced the stage with all their 
charm and glamour . . . The fresh- 
men superiority and austere dignity 
returned when they greeted the 
high school graduates at the old 
lunch stand in Smith Hall. Gee! 
It certainly felt good not to be the 
last served. 

At mid-term several important 
new personalities joined the ranks 
of the freshmen. Humorous Ed 
Dodson made his presence felt 
shortly, and lovely Nancy Hays 
crashed the hearts of most of the 
freshmen. They were also thrilled 
to have Mary Hull and Jeanne Jor- 
dan become members of the class 
at this time.

After a short time such talent 
had been discovered as Wendell 
Given's newspaper ability, Mary 
Clapper's way of remembering dates, 
and Margaret Lee Monroe's way of 
getting them, Mary Sue Xeely's 
and Kate Markee's beautiful voices, 
Jane Murphy's and Eugenia Breed- 
en's gift for writing short stories, 
and Jim Berry's technique of cut- 
ting class and getting away with it. 

Among the many other highly- 
interesting and promising personali- 
ties of the class are: Henry Price, 
the pride of Renfrce Hall and the 
genius of the pharmacy labs; Vir- 
ginia Holliman, Martha Sue Stokes, 
Murrell Johnson, John Seale, Gladys

Marv Minyard, and Warren Hutchi- 

Tlic Freshmen were given a new 
and better outlook on things dur- 
ing Religious Focus Week, a ver) 
inspiring series of programs in 
which they heard many interesting 
speakers. All were especially en- 
thusiastic over Mrs. Eubanks and 
particularly Bob Norman. They 
certainly felt good when they were 
told of how highly intelligent they 
were and what a bright future lay 
before them. Of course they had 
known it all the time, but had not 
been able to convince the upper- 
classmen of it. 

The future really does look fair 
for this class, which contains so 
much intelligence, leadership, beau- 
ty, wit, and more than half of the 
sophomore and junior classes. 

When Mr. Roosevelt retires; when 
Stephen Foster's "Jeannie With the 
Light Brown Hair" turns gray with 
age; and when the Varsity beats the 
frosh cagers, the following impres- 
sions of the freshman year will lin- 
ger in the memory of young col- 

Dr. True's "Pardon my New Eng- 
land accent"; to dance cr not to 
dance in the gym; Alon Bee's su- 
perb dramatic ability; Miss Boyett's 
Science Hall Hounds and Country 
Club Lounge Lizards; Miss Sparks' 
"Open your mouth and loosen up 
your lip" . . . the moon from Sher- 
man Oak one night when a fresh- 
man quite shy said to a guy named 
Cy: "If you kiss me of course, you 
will have to use force, but thank 
heaven you're stronger than I." 

It's only a matter of time: pass- 
ing or failing, a gold mine to pay 
the treasurer, and they will ascend 
from the lowly ranks of a Fresh- 
man to become Sophomores.

Oh, Howard, Alma Mater true, 

I love thy glorious name, deserving every honor due 

To an unsullied fame. 

I'll love thee through each fleeting breath 

For all that thou has done, 

And in the agonies of death 

Be still thy loving son. 

Oh, Alma Mater, dear, thy life 

A treasure is to me: 

Thou, Phoenix fair, through flames and strife, 

Hast shown thy right to be. 

Since poverty has made thee rich 

And struggle made thee strong, 

I view thee in thy self-made niche, 

And burst to filial song. 

Oh, parent true, the future fair 

Must hold but good for thee, 

For hope's fruition waits thee there 

In blest reality. 

And sons like thine will make thee shine 

With glory all thine own, 

And bring to thy maternal shrine 

Not gifts of gold alone.

President of the student body this 
year was Tom Ogle, long experienced 
at grappling with the problems of stu-

The Women's Student Government 
is the principal governing organ for 
women students at Howard. It is 
controlled by a council composed of 
the presidents of the various organi- 
zations on the campus. This group 
meets with its sponsor, Mrs. Oben- 
chain, to study and discuss matters 
relating to the activities of women 
students. Its nature is social rather 

than political, a characteristic which 
distinguishes it from the regular stu- 
dent government. 

The organization sponsored sev- 
eral programs for the co-eds during 
the past year, inviting prominent 
women as guest speakers. Its varied 
activities for the year include a fash- 
ion show and a tea for the freshman

In this, the twenty-seventh volume of 
The Entre Nous, we have done our best 
to portray life at Howard College as it 
really is, adjourning all partisanship. We 
know that the book represents quite a lit- 
tle work, we hope some original think- 
ing, certainly a little heartache. 

This year, for the first time in its long 
history, the publication was produced en- 
tirely in Birmingham. The photography, 
the engraving, and the printing were 
done entirely by local firms. 

If it does not merit your approval, we 
can find consolation in the fact that it is 
entirely new, representing the energy 
and creativeness of our own students. All 
division and subdivision pages are en- 
tirely original, contrary to the tradi- 
tional custom of using stock plates. Even 
the basic format of the book is new. 

For assistance rendered in its prepara- 
tion, we wish to express our appreciation 
to Mr. Robert Faerber, of the Alabama 
Engraving Company; Mr. Orville Law- 
son, of the Birmingham Printing Com- 
pany; Mr. Johnny Walsh, of the firm of 
Loveman, Joseph and Loeb; and Mr. 
John Rogers, former director of public 
relations at Howard College.

Tin Howard Crimson, the weekly 
newspaper of the College, provides an 
outlet tor journalistic ability on the 
campus. Tor twenty-six years, through 
flames and strife and economic depres- 
sions, it has served faithfully as "The 
Mirror of Campus Life." Under the 
management of the past year, the news- 
paper has been unusually popular. Its 
editorial page has been modified and 
brightened, and its column heads had a 
professional touch. Finally, the amount 
and quality of the information it con- 
tained was superior. 

The editor of The Crimson is elected 
by popular vote in the student body, and 
the business manager is appointed by the 
Publications Board. Head man this year 
was hard-working Billy Riddle, whose 
checkered career includes being editor of 
The Bullpup, president of his fraternity, 
and a freshman football player. James 
Wade, former business manager of The 
Bullpup, handled the business affairs of 
the paper. Under the leadership of these 
two, The Crimson has been truly repre- 
sentative of the student body.

The Women's Pan-Hellenic Council is the recognized inter-sorority panel where all the 
Hellenes may bring their problems for discussion and solving. Its mission in the world 
is to promote better understanding among the feminine Greeks and to preserve the tran- 
quility of that section of the campus that lies between Pine Lodge and the Library. 

The Council is composed of the presidents and vice presidents of each sorority on 
the campus, and is truly dedicated to the task of making the organization a beneficial 
one to all the sororities. This year it was certainly a galaxy of campus personalities, for 
it included such girls as Marjorie Holccmb, Corrie Anderson, and Mary Emily Wishart. 
Under Dean Obenchain's direction, it serves a distinct and indispensable purpose as a 
governing body.

The Men's Pan-Hellenic Council was founded for the purpose of determining the policy 
of the Greek-letter societies on the campus, and to handle matters of common interest to 
them all. Its membership is composed cf two representatives from each of the fraterni- 
ties. Its several other activities usually include an annual social at which all fraternal 
differences are forgotten. 

In its historic and accepted function of meeting with the women students and decid- 
ing how they would like for the spring elections to come out, the Pan bogged down this 
year. Only one man whom they sanctioned was elected, and he would probably have 
gotten elected without their magnanimity. For the other candidates sponsored by them, 
it was a case of out of the pan into the fire. However, the Sigma Nus, who came late to 
the vineyard, stuck in their thumb and pulled out at least a plum-seed in Wee Richey 
("little but loud"). 

But, as Scarlett said, tomorrow is another day. The Council serves a practical and 
essential purpose. It can look forward to a year of even greater service next year.

The Alpha Delta Pi Sorority is the oldest on the 
campus, and for consistency in scholarship, lead- 
ership, and personality, is among the first. Their 
claim to eminence was upheld this year by pretty 
young intellectuals such as Edna Jo Medlin, Sue 
Blantcn, and deLacee White. Sue was also treaus- 
urer of the student body during the past year, and 
lias been elected to the Student Senate for the 
forthcoming year. 

Among the many outstanding personalities of 
this sorority were Edna Earl Barnes, that blond 
who wears such elegant clothes (she never wears 
the same outfit to the class twice) ; the Jacobs 
sisters, from the hills of Tennessee; Edwina Wal- 
lace, who seems to think that the Pi Kappa Phis 
are regular fellows; and of course, deLacee, the 
brains of the Science Hall. 

The A D Pi's had more than their share of 
feminine pulchritude in their midst this year. 
They had three finalists in the beauty parade, two 
oi whom won places in the beauty section of 

ENTRE NOUS. They alsc had the dream girls 
of two fraternities (the Pi K A's and Sigma Nus). 
However, insofar as high offices are concerned, 
they seem destined to waste their sweetness on the 
desert air next year, for their only candidate in 
the spring elections came in second in a two- 
woman race. 

Socially, in a like manner the A D Pi's kept up 
with the rest. Their social merry-go-round trav- 
eled fast and furious, and happy times were had 
at the lodge, in town, and at the Hollywood 

Apparently the future, if not too dazzling in 
its brilliance, is certainly not a cloudy one for 
these young ladies. A number of promising new 
inititates give them the assurance that the sor- 
ority will continue to have the same high stand- 
ard of membership. They can be justly proud 
of their sisterhood, for many prominent wemen 
in every walk of life have passed through its por- 
tals during their co-ed days.

If the Greeks did have a word for it (and they 
say they did), it was probably Delta Zeta. In 
fact, to describe the sorority by that name on 
this campus would require all the adjectives of 
that limpid language. Any organization that can 
bring together talent, beauty, and scholarship un- 
der one roof the way this one can, deserves an 
ovation in Anthony's best style. 

But if Brutus had said that this group were am- 
bitious, he would certainly have been correct. The 
sorority represents scholarship, leadership, and so- 
cial prominence. Their roll book this year con- 
tained the names of such outstanding students as 
Jane Purser Brown and Frances Vaughn, vice 
president and treasurer of Hypatia, respectively; 
Betty Jordan, president of the Glee Club and a 
gifted pianist, as is Miss Vaughn; Frances Ray, a 
singer of unusual ability and personality; two class 
secretaries, Margaret Sue Denton, senior, and Betty 
Prince, freshman; Susie Mary Rainey, outstanding 
member of VI'. A. A. and vice president of that 

organization; and lastly, Martha Arnold, an en- 
trant in the beauty parade whose picture was 
ranked high in the estimation of Mr. Kay Kyser. 

Foremost ameng the several social activities of 
the Delta Zetas were their Founders Day Banquet 
in October at Roebuck Country Club; their Rose 
Banquet and Ball early in April with the Molton 
Hotel and the Pickwick as the scenes of activity; 
and finally their reception honoring their patron- 
esses in mid-May. These social functions were 
presented with the usual care and finesse that has 
characterized the Delta Zeta Sorority throughout 
the seventeen years of its existence on the cam- 

For soundness of purpose and thoroughness of 
i rganization, there is no social group on the 
campus that excells the Delta Zetas. They have 
every reason to be proud of the traditions and 
high standards that have been passed on to them, 
and which they are certainly doing such a cred- 
itable job of upholding.

The Beta Sigs may be "that snootie bunch," but 
they certainly know their way around like an 
officer Oil his favorite beat. Their cheerful spirit 
of participation in all college activities has come 
to be an accepted fact on the campus. At an] 
rate, the B. S. O.'s do their share in making the 
chapel programs in the Co-Op entertaining. This 
sisterhood is one which is profoundly dedicated to 
the sounding-out and cultivating cf the finer 
qualities of womanhood through association at a 
common fireside. It is highly selective, yet not 
so exclusive that aspiration to membership ap- 
proaches moon-reaching. 

The girls who wore the jeweled sigma this year 
represent a gcod cross section of the feminine 
population of the campus. They include Mary 
Emily Wishart, three times selected as one of the 
half- dozen most beautiful girls on the campus; 

Abilane Knight, that superb actress M\d member 
of Hypatia; Bernice Brown, girl athlete; Earline 
I.argle, usually accorded the distinction of being 
one of the cutest girls in the college; and Mary 
Elizabeth Clapper, librarian extraordinary. 

The B. S. O.'s board of social strategy slept lit- 
tle during the past year, and a program of enter- 
tainment that was both diverting and practical 
was the result. In addition to their spring dance 
and a hilarious "Come-As- You-Are" Part)', they 
gave a highly successful social for the benefit of 
the Crippled Children's Clinic which would have 
done credit to an)' organization on any campus. 

Waltzes come and go, cinema stars rise, set, 
and are forgotten, winter changes to spring .... 
but Beta Sigma Omicrcn remains the same, trav- 
eling an open but unfrequented path in the ful- 
fillment of an unselfish purpose.

For the benefit of confused freshmen, the Phi Mu 
Sorority may be distinguished from the others of 
the group by the presence of Paul Corlcy and 
M.iry Auston sitting on the steps. Because it is 
the largest sorority on the campus, it may appear 
at first glance they go in fcr quantity, but a 
closer examination will disclose that they also con- 
sider quality. In fact, the Scholarship Cup has set 
so long on the Phi Mu mantle that it has worn a 
neat little ring there, and from all indications, it 
will probably continue to repose there for years to 

The Phi Mu social calendar was slightly clut- 
tered during the past year with such important 
events as, their Country Party at the Hollywood 
Stables: their district convention in town; and, 
just as April began to swing out on the fiddle, 
their spring dance. 

In the realm of politics, the sorority was far 
from being tardy also. Florrie Thompson, cne of 
the most popular girls in the group, elected 
president of Women's Student Government; Mar- 
jorie Holcomb, whose picture twice appeared in 
the beauty section of Entre Nous, was elected 
Miss Howard (again) ; Corrie Anderson, also a 
beauty entrant, was eiccted Most Beautiful at the 
same polling; Frances Butler was elected to the 
Student Senate; and lastly, Sara Cofield received 
the highest honor awarded to a woman student 
on the campus, the presidency of Hypatia. 

At present the Phi Mu horo/on looks very 
rosy, what with several of the young ladies safe- 
ly ensconced in high office for next year, and 
their new members proving more than worthy of 
the high honor bestowed upon them.

For several years a small and relatively impotent 
fraternity, the Snakes have shown remarkable vi- 
tality in reorganizing and expanding their chap- 
ter. During the opening months of the school 
year, they more than doubled their usual bag 
limit of pledges, and later on in the winter ran the 
total up to twenty-two. Traditionally very ex- 
clusive and very aloof, the fraternity now has a 
larger membership than at any time in its recent 

The Sigma Nus began the year's activities with 
their annual Pledge Banquet and Dance, the sixty- 
second in the history of Iota Chapter. Their so- 
cial calendar was red-lettered with a Faculty 
Smoker, a "Gay Nineties" Party, a Dutch Supper, 
the usual spring dance at the Country Club, and. 
several other highly successful minor functions. 
Most attractive cf all was the "Gay Nineties" 

Party, held at the house. Guests wore costumes of 
the eighteen nineties, the house was decorated 
like a bar room of the same period, and everyone 
assumed the airs of a past generation. 

Nor were the Snakes behind the door when the 
honcrs were given out. Theo Emcns was elected 
president of the Senior Class, J. M. Deason as 
business manager of the annual, Thomas Bryan 
to the dubious honor of membership on the Stu- 
dent Publications Board, and Seymour Wilkes was 
appointed as managing editor of ENTRE NOUS. 
Seymcur and Bill)' Gwin were elected to the Sen- 
ate, a representation very much appreciated by the

The Pi K A Fraternity finished another very suc- year under the leadership of Tom Ogle and 
Billy Riddle. Riddle succeeded to the presidency 
of the frat after Tom dropped out of school for 
a short time last fall. 

Socially the Pike more than held their own, 
entertaining the campus with a very delightful 

series of parties. They started the year off with 
a group of unique rush parties, and without 
slackening the pace, followed them up with a 
Hallowe'en Party; a Country Pair for charity in 
the gym; a steak fry; a hilarious Celebration Part}' 
at the end of nine weeks exams; a political rally ; 
and a series of functions honoring the sororities 
on the campus. A very fitting climax to the sea- 
son's activities was their annual dance at the Pick- 
wick which met with unsual success. 

Politically, the Pi K A's have been far from 
dormant. Last spring two of the choicest politi- 
cal plums on the campus fell into their out- 
stretched hands. With the election of Tom Ogle 
as president of the student body, and Bill) Riddle 
as editcr of the Crimson, the Pikes were again as- 
sured of two very high seats in the synagogue. To 
crown their political fortunes, Hugh Gaylor and 
I.lwood Burks were elected to the Student Sen- 
ate, giving the frat two more fingers in the po- 
litical pie. 

An unusual and distinctive feature of the chap- 
ter is its very active Mothers' Club, which enter- 
tains them with a luncheon at the house each

This year the Lambda Chis brought their mem- 
bership up to a new high — sixteen members and 
pledges. During the current year, they have 
certainly demonstrated that in a small group each 
man's character and personality can be more gen- 
erally felt, with a more vigorous and aggressive 
fraternity resulting. 

Opening up the year with a street car party 
and following it closely with many other unusual 
affairs, this up-and-coming aggregation has cer- 
tainly crashed the social circle during the past 
year. The)' attended the Howard-Spring Hill 
game in a body, and certainly did have a wonder- 
ful spirit (or perhaps we should have said spirits), 
with a steak fry at Greensprings climaxing the 
evening's activities. Their social highlight of the 

year was their annual spring dance, a gala affair 
late in March. 

Very prominent in campus activities, the 
Lambda Chis can boast of having Donald Ad- 
cock, president of the Junior Class; James W.idc, 
business manager of the Crimson; and Fcrrell Law- 
rence, fcrmer president of the fraternity, as treas- 
urer of the Men's Pan. Late in the spring a mili- 
tant group of the brethren started a very promis- 
ing campaign to have their head man, Donald 
(Eagle) Adcock, elected president of the student 

Next year, under the leadership of their new 
prexy, the Lambda Chis expect to do bigger and 
better things.

During the current /ear, Pi Kappa Phi enjoyed 
an exceptionally fruitful period of growth and 
activity. Under the very able leadership of quiet 
but efficient George Murrah, much was accom- 
plished in a material way. When the smoke of 
rush week had cleared away, there were ten new 
Greeks wearing the pledge button of Pi Kappa 

Politically the Boys from the Woods held their 
own, which is very near the top. John Latham 
w as elected vice president of the student body and 
president of Trident, highest men's honor society 
on the campus. Carey Gwin was elected presi- 
dent of the Sophomore Class, and Bill Stickles 
was appointed assistant editor of the Crimson. 
Two Pi Kappa Phis, John Latham and Stewart 

Winton, were elected to membership in that 
highly select group known to men as Who's Who 
Among Students in American Universities and 

Socially, three important events linger in the 
memories of the Pi Kappa Phis. They are: Home- 
coming en the eve of the Howard-Spring Hill 
game (which turned out to be a track meet); 
the annual dance at the Pickwick on April 9; 
and Founders' Day Banquet during the latter part 
of April. These and numerous light parties at 
the frat house and elsewhere made the season an 
interesting one for the Pi Kaps. Long after the 
cigar smoke has dissipated and ice-packs are no 
longer useful, they will remember it as a most en- 
joyable year of fun and study.

Oh ivy clinging to the wall, 
How many secrets have you seen 
Of boys and girls of Howard 
Who pass beneath your green. 

You've seen the little secret woes, 
Heartfelt distress and bitter strife; 
You've shared the happy moments too, 
That come to every student's life. 

You've seen them live, you've seen them love, 
As 'neath your verdant leaves they strolled; 
You've heard them tell it, o'er and o'er — 
The story that shall n'er grow old. 


But if you told your secrets, 
And all the things you've seen, 
You wouldn't be a mystic viel 
But just an ivy green!

the Old Professor himself, K.iv Kyser. Mr. 
Kyser needs no introduction to this or any 
college set. 1 le is the very popular conductor 
of chat magnificent swing orchestra of screen 
and radio fame. This is one professor who did 
not have to contend with apple-polishing, for 
he made the selections in His luxurious suite in 
Sun-el Plaza 1 lotel in Hollywood. 

In ,i letter which accompanied the returned

ticulty which he experienced in making his

The Student Publications Board was created by the constitution of 1939, and its chief 
duties are, to approve all contracts relating to publications, to supervise the spending of 
funds allocated to them, and to elect the several business managers. 

Its membership is composed of three students elected by the Senate, the Dean of the 
College, and the head of the Department of Economics. Board members for this year 
were: Eddie Welch, popular athlete and president of the H Club; Gerow Hodges, former 
outstanding football player; and Tom Bryan, a sound-money man and an economics 
major. These, with Dean Burns and Dr. David W. Thompson, were decidedly influen- 
tial in directing the destinies of the various publications. 

In spite of a stcrm of controversy, the Board has served the Student Body well dur- 
ing the past year, and is assured of its permanency as an organ of student government.

The Dietetics Club is composed of members selected from the Dietetics Department 
who have manifested a more than casual interest in nutrition and the possibilities latent 
in its study. Its faculty advisor is Mrs. Elizabeth Seay, and this year the club enjoyed 
the distinction of having a lodge almost entirely to itself. 

Besides serving those delicious faculty and organization luncheons, the dieteticians 
made the refreshments for the various parties held in the gym, baked the pies for H Day 
(tough crust, girls), and had an entrant in the Beauty Parade. The girls were among 
the most outstanding on the campus, claiming three Y. W. C. A. Cabinet members, a 
letter wearer among the women athletes, the president of Hypatia, Carolyn Wilson, and 
Mary Auston. With such a membership, everyone will agree that this is certainly no 
ordinary organization.

Alpha Fpsilon Delta is a very purposeful pre-medical fraternity composed of all of 
Howard's future Dr. Kildares and their feminine counterparts. In spite of the serious- 
ness of the organization, its members cut up lots (in both senses). Dr. W. F. Aber- 
crombie, voluble Republican, is faculty advisor. 

Founded at the University of Alabama, the fraternity is a national organization of 
wide recognition. It has as its paramount aim the spanning of the gap between the 
pre-med and advanced school of medicine. There are certainly no symptoms of 
"gaposis" here, for there are more than thirty A. E. D. alumni doing graduate work all 
over America.

Under the skillful leadership of Margaret McClellan, the Baptist Student Union has 
been one of the most progressive organizations on the campus during the current year. 
Its purpose is to weld a connecting unit between the college and religious life of the 
students. Its most successful undertaking was Religious Focus Week, a well organized 
series of chapel programs, class visitations, and personal conferences. 

Other activities of a busy year include the organization of a city-wide union for 
Baptist students in higher education, the publication of a news bulletin for its members, 
an Easter Sunday breakfast, and several other parties for the entire student body.

An organization in which the minister and the fraternity men, plus all elements in 
between these ends, can meet on common ground, the Men's Y has been comparatively 
inactive at Howard. Dreams have largely been the substance of the Y. M. C. A. in 
recent years. Founded on a truly noble ideal, its aim is the promotion of a finer Chris- 
tian fellowship and understanding on the campus. 

The spark which has kept the Y gcing when it looked as if nothing could has been 
their annual ENTRE NOUS picture. The occasion of its making has come to be the 
annual meeting of the organization.

The Y.W.C.A. is the most active of all religious organizations at Howard, very 
often assuming the character of a company of Girl Scouts. One of the best reasons for 
its animation is the energy and personality of Martha Merck, long one of its guiding 

During the past year, all the members were divided up into special interest groups; 
some made clothing for the British, some studied better citizenship, others devoted their 
time to the exploration of hobbies. Besides being supersaleswomen, the girls arc also ex- 
cellent organizers, entertainers, and advertisers. They were joint hostesses to the state 
Y convention, inaugurated Speak Week, gave numerous parties and luncheons and sold 
an unbelievable number of doughnuts.

The Freshman Commission is a group of super-energetic freshman girls whose aims 
parallel those of the regular Y. W/. C. A., although their organization is a separate one. 
They have done everything they said they would — even the impossible. If they keep 
this up, there is no telling what great things these youngsters will accomplish when they 
grow up. 

If you have eaten as many as two doughnuts during the past year, you may be 
assured that one of those doughnuts was sold by the Freshman Y. It is rumcred that 
during the doughnut sale, Dr. Lovegren had to enter and leave his classroom by the 
window to avoid exposing himself to their salesmanship when he passed the stand. 

Carolyn Gates led the frosh in all their wild schemes of the year. To paraphrase a 
famous slogan, "The Freshman Commission will be heard from today."

Ever since The Great Groff left these parts, Kappa Psi does not seem to be the same. 
They had no float in the parade, but were very happy when they learned that there was 
no parade. How really important this organization is, few on the campus realize. They 
have John Latham, who has a job; Norris Able, who can get butter from a milkshake, 
and they did bare Wyatt Pope, but he had a lew draft number. 

Kappa Psi was founded in 1879 at the School of Pharmacy of the Medical College of 
Virginia, and is the oldest and most reputable of professional pharmacy fraternities. Its 
members are selected from the ranks of those who are interested in pharmacy and uphold 
the dignity of the profession. Dr. Bliss is faculty advisor and Grand Worthy Potentate, 
or Maharajah, or something.

The Kappa Pi Art Fraternity is a unit of a national organization dedicated to the 
discovery and encouragement of art on the campus. It was founded at Howard in the 
fall of 1940, and has won recognition for the magnificent art work which its members 
produce and display. To be eligible for membership, cne must be a student in the art 
department and have manifested more than ordinary ability as an artist. 

The faculty advisor is Miss Alida Townes, art instructor at Howard. The group 
meets in the art room on the top floor of the Student Activities Building. Its annual 
display of painting in the college library attracts wide attention from the student body 
and from critics off the campus.

This group is representative of the outstanding students in the universities and col- 
leges throughout the land. Eligibility is based on scholarship, character, leadership, and 
promise of future usefulness to society. Its fundamental aim is to give appropriate rec- 
ognition to those students who have distinguished themselves in these qualities during 
their college career. 

Its yearly publication containing the biographies of those elected to this honor ap- 
pears each February, and this year contained the names of twelve Howard students. 
These represent a wide sampling cf campus life. Four persons who were recognized in 
the Who's Who poll conducted on the campus by the publications last fall, duplicated 
here. It is certainly a crowning honor for a college career and a valuable recommenda- 
tion in later life.

Hypatia is recognized as the highest henor society for women on the campus. It 
was organized secretly in 1924 to fill the need for such an organization for women 
students, and at one time had as many as two chapters elsewhere. Since its founding, 
Hypatia has tapped about one hundred and fifteen girls, whose records after graduation 
have more than justified their being called to membership. 

Hypatia has a somewhat larger membership this year than usual, but every girl was 
worthy of the high honor. Every member has received high recognition elsewhere on 
the campus. All arc high officers in other organizations. This group of co-eds certainly

who have maintained a consistently high scholastic record, have been outstanding in 
extra-curricular activities, and bear the endorsement of the student body and the faculty 
as to character, ability, and potentiality for future service are eligible. These are tapped 
at a special chapel program late in the spring. 

Its constituency this year included the president of the Ministerial Association, the 
vice president of the student body, and three others conspicious as leaders and promoters 
of college activities.

The Masquers Club was organized in 1933 as an outlet for dramatic ability on the 
campus, and is largely responsible for those magnificent productions that have drawn 
comments from all over the state. Members arc admitted first because of their dra- 
matic ability, second for the spirit of their interest in the art. So democratic and 
impartial is its management, that a star in one production may be no more than the 
approaching footsteps in another. 

President and leading personality of the Masquers was Saranel Burford, whose splen- 
did performances have given her name a permanent piacc on the wall of fame back-

her fellow-Masquers as "Toni."

Beta Pi Theta is the French Honorary Societe mes infants, composed of the members 
of the French classes who attain an excellence in French and everything else. The group 
meets in the interest of furthering the study of French literature, music, and art. Be- 
tween Dr. Acton's jokes, which are always good the first time, and Mary Gwillim's 
fascinating freckles, the fraternity does a great deal to encourage the stud}' and use of 
the language. 

Requirements for entrance is a superior scholastic record, a good comprehension of 
French, and an eminence in stud:nt activities. This year Jane Purser Brown was presi- 
dent, a job no one coveted, for the initiation service is entirely in French.

edition of Bulldog gridders. Only twenty-four 
varsity men reported fcr duty, and four top- 
notch Southeastern Conference teams were 
slated on successive week-ends. General opinion 
was that the team would do well to win even 
three games. This did not in any way disturb 
the dignity of Coach White. Het set to work, 
.ind with a patience born of years of effort, 
forged a team that wen four out of five con- 
ference games. 

WH1TL— Played his colle- 
giate football for the Uni- 
versity of Tennessee, where 
he was constantly observing 
and making mental notes of 
those hidden elements in the 
game which distinguish a 
good team from a mediocre 
one. Success while at Ram- 
say High School as head 
coach earned him an invita- 
tion to take over at Howard 
in the spring of 193 9. Com- 
ing to He ward at a time 
when football was definitely 
en the downgrade, through 
his energy and personality he 
has caused the athletic depart- 
ment to do an about-face. 

When Coach White opened 
training last fall, things did 
not look so bright for his first 

That is bill White from the football 
angle, but that is certainly not all of him. He 
is said to be an excellent after-dinner speaker, 
always entertaining but never boasting. He 
believes in his boys making good in the class- 
room as well as on the field, and has acted 
accordingly. His nightly studyhalls for all 
athletes at Renfroe is evidence of his concern 
for their mental growth.

Howard may not have a super team next 
fall, but unless the draft hits the squad too 
hard, Coach White and the Bulldogs will be 
heard from. 

JIM STUART — Freshman football coach and 
head basketball mentor. It is certainly hard 
not to like Coach Jim once you know him. 
Broad shouldered and athletic, with a pleasant 
disposition, he is appropriately referred to as 
the "lovable Yankee." 

Stuart is a former Bulldog star himself, hav- 
ing held down an end post not many years 
ago, and from all accounts he was a whizz. He 
attended Howard during those glorious days 
cf keen rivalry with another Birmingham col- 
lege. Then, too, he must have done his chores 
on the basketball team very well, to be able to 
indoctrinate into men like Kenny Morgan and 
Eddie Welch that uncanny ability to sense 
plays and frustrate them. 

Coach Jim's frosh grid forces were unusually 
able and aggressive. Playing three games, they 
lost to the University of Alabama, and then 
administered a rather embarrassing defeat to 
the Tiger Cubs from Auburn. Chattanooga's 
Baby Mcccasins went down rather easily before 
the best frosh team in years. 

Jim Stuart has a host of friends at Howard 
College and among coaches and referees else- 
where. Our bet is that he has only begun 
what will be a great career in sports. 

LEW BOSTICK— Line coach. Captained Ala- 
bama's Crimson Tide in his senior year and 
proved to be a fine leader. His peformance in 
the Rose Bowl won him the admiration of 
scuthern football fans. Following a fling at 
professional football, he decided to join the 
ranks of the tutors, and last spring found him 
at Howard. 

With not too much material with which to 
work, Coach Bostick turned out one of the best 
lines in the Dixie Conference. From end to 
end it was fast, hard-charging, and a bulwark 
on defense. Having played guard himself, the 
Tider knew all the angles and passed them on 
to the Bulldogs. 

Ik-sides his work on the gridiron, Bostick 
coached the freshman basketball team, and al- 
though there was a wealth of material on hand, 
he must be given his share of the credit. The 
Pups under his direction won ten of eleven 
games played.

Howard pried the lid oii n> 1940 grid campaign by 
scoring twice on a supposedly much stronger Auburn 
team and holding the 1 i.wrv to a 27-13 triumph, Both 
of the Bulldog scores came as ■ result oi Jimmy Tar- 
rant's pana to 1 arl Gartmen in the lasi quarter. Sam 
Goldman, performing at left end tor the Bulldogs, 
wai perhapi the outitanding linesman <>n the field. 
Kenny Morgan and Dan Zobrosky alio turned in neat 
performance! for I Inward. 

The Bulldogi were defeated in Atlanta the following 
week by a superior Georgia Tech team 27-o. The 

Jackets lumped into an early lead and I Inward never 
threatened until late in the final period. Coldman 

and Tarrant continued their iparkling play againii the 
I ngineeri, but ii was Woodrow raylor, hefty tackle, 

who made the best impression on the Rambling Wreck. 
For the third successive week, the Crimsons took on 

a Big I 3 opponent, and for the third Straight time 
took a beating. This time ii was Alabama's Crimson 
Tide who turned the trick. Alabama counted twice in 
the tirst and three times in the second halt to carve 
out a 31-0 victory. The Bulldogs pushed into scoring 
position repeatedly, but bogged down each time as 
'Kama's defense stiffened. 

Howard's final SEC opponent, Mississippi State Mi 
room, put on a groat offensive exhibition to trounce the 
Bulldogs 40-7. The Maroons tallied in every period 
and gave Howard its worst of the season. The 
prowess ot Jimmy I arrant, aerial artist, was again felt 
as the former W'oodlawn High star passed to J arl 
Gartman for the Crimsons' only touchdown in the 
fading minutes of the final quarter. The Bulldogs 
carried away the honor ot being one of the icv,' teams 
that was able to pierce the Maroons' goal line. 

Making a brilliant comeback in the final quarter to 
score two touchdowns, the Bulldogs registered their first 
triumph of the 1940 season by edging Southwestern 13-7. 
The Crimsons entered the fourth period trailing 7-0, but

and Tarrant passed to Taylor on the four, from where Zobrosky carried it 
over in two tries. The victory gained sweet revenge for the defeat of 1939. 

Following five weeks of gruelling play without a rest, Howard was due a 
letdown and it came against Chattanooga the following week as the Moccasins 
won, 28-0. A tricky and smooth-working Chattanooga offense completely 
baffled the Bulldogs. The Snakes scored once in the second period to lead 7-0 
at the halftime, then rolled up three additional markers in the second half. 
Captain Kenny Morgan played one of the best games of his collegiate career 
against the 'Noogans. Also outstanding were Gladney, Drake, and Norris. 

Coach White's scrappy eleven came back after a week's rest to conquer 
Mercer's Bears in a thriller-diller at Macon, Ga., 14-6. Trailing 7-6 in the 
final period, the Bears inaugurated a concerted drive that carried right to the 
Howard goal line, but a fumble gave the 'Dogs a break and a few minutes 
later they had chalked up their second touchdown. The triumph was Howard's 
second in three Dixie Conference starts. 

A more alert and aggressive grid machine never came on Legion Field than 
the Howard team which plowed under Spring Hill 52-7 on Homecoming and 
Thanksgiving. The Bulldog forcwall completely outplayed the Badger line all 
the way. From end to end, the Crimsons were a bulwark on defense and a 
fast-charging unit on offense. The Bulldogs were in top form and could have 
knocked off any team in the conference that day. 

Howard put the finishing touch on whirlwind finish of the 1940 session 
with a convincing triumph over Millsaps, 2 8-14. The Mississippi eleven coun- 
tered twice in the last half, but Howard was coasting and had a comfortable 
margin. Little Jimmy Tarrant completed one of the most remarkable perform- 
ances seen in the south all year. Final figures showed him to be one of the 
best passers in the nation, a record which earned him a berth on the All-Dixie 

It was a great year for the Bulldogs — a year which saw them lose only one 
conference game, play a tougher schedule than any other Dixie loop member 
and still finish third. With only five seniors leaving and an eager bunch of 
frosh on the way up, it looks like next season will be a banner year for

e* e* t I It 


t HARLES DOUGLAS— A highly dependable end both 
on offense and defense. Flailing from Parrish, Ala, he came to Howard in 1937 and lias followed 

close in the footsteps of his big bro' who was also a 
Howard star. I lis last season was probably Ills best, 

although few will forget the remarkable performance 

he gave on Thanksgiving Day I9}8 (Howard 2S, llir- 
mingham-Southern 0). 

AUXFORU WATKINS— "Cooter" is an hundred and 
ninety pound, six foot two inch end, has contributed 
three fine years to Howard. He is good on defense, 
but is exceptionally fine on offense. lor consistency 

and dependability, "Cooter" is on a par with any in 
the conference. 

I \i K MOORE— -Jack is an hundred and ninety-five 
pound senior who plays his heart out in every game. 
I le considers every practice session a game without 
qualifications. He is big, rugged and aggressive. 
Jack's two varsity years at Howard were his best, due 
to injuries inflicted in his senior year. \1oorc conies 
to us from Jones Valley. 

KENNY MORGAN— Kenny was the captain of the 
IV4II bulldog machine, and a very capab'e one, too. 
He was cool and dependable and greatly admired bv his 
followers. In his junior year he received All-Dixie 
recognition, and repeated in his senior year. His grad- 
ual ion will be a great loss to the squad. Kenny is a 
product of Alabama City. 

SAM GOI DM AN — One of the best ends to ever en- 
roll at Howard, Sam proved to be a find that man) of 
the larger universities began to covet before his career 
was hardly begun. He received All-Dixie honors with 
a great many ballots to spare, and was also mentioned 
on little All-America. Sam dropped out of school at 
the end of the semester to enter business. 
Not Pictured 


Kl NNY BAKIR— This Cleveland ace made a come- 
back this season after dropping out last year because of 
a chronic series of injuries. Kenny is a fast, hard- 
hitting end who can knife his way through the most 
cunning offense. His excellent pass receiving and his 
elusiveness are outstanding features of his play. 

ORVILLE HAUSF. — One of the best blocking backs 
Howard has had for a long time. As "Fatty" goes, so 
goes the team. He is the workhorse of the squad, sel- 
dom carrying the ball himself. He has fine qualities 
and will be an even greater player in his senior year. 
Hausc is a junior from Piedmont. 

[ 132 1 

M cl 

DAVID DRAKE— A product of Owens Cross Roads, 
David has been awarded the honor of assisting Woodrow 
Taylor in captaining the '41 squad. He is a big, fast, 
rugged guard, a good blocker and a bulwark on de- 
fense. Dave is one of the few guards who will return 
next year. His presence at guard is a comfort to the 
home fans, the chagrin of the opposition. 

CARL FOLDS — This one hundred and ninety pound 
Hanceville junior is best remembered for his perform- 
ance in the Mercer game of 19}9. He possesses an 
unusual amount of ability as a lineman, and for that 
reason has been playing at both tackle and guard posts. 
The greater part of the year he was hampered by in- 
juries, and did not fully recover until the season was 
far advanced. "Cot's" return next year will greatly 
strengthen the forewall. 

LOUIS NORRIS— A guard of no little ability, when 
the company gets rough, he gets rough with the com- 
pany. "Lug" is speedy and versatile, can cross the 
opponents' line and crush their plays. He is also a 
great blocker. Norris will be greatly missed next year 
as he answers the call to the colors. 

RALPH SIBI.KY — "Tex" is one of the smallest men on 
the line, but possesses a great amount of ability, as his 
performance at left guard last season proved. Ralph 
loved the game for the pure fun of it. He strove to 
do his best in every game and practice session alike. 
Sibley is a one hundred and seventy-five pound guard 
from Lumber City, Ga. He, like Norris, will not be 
with us next year since he is trading the moleskin for 
the khaki. 

WOODROW TAYLOR— One of the best tackles to don 
the Howard colors in many years, this blond giant has 
been elected to lead the Bulldogs next year. He is ab- 
solutely unafraid of anything the opposition might have 
to offer, is always getting the jump on his opponent. 
He is a tackle by profession and is from Wedowee. 

DURWOOD WILLIAMSON— One of the best runners, 
blockers, and passers on the team is Durwood William- 
son. He is a very versatile triple threat and great 
things are expected of him next year. Durwood has 
not been able to give his best because of injuries, but 
he should be in good shape by next fall. lie is a junior 
from Clanton and weighs one hundred and sixty-five 

[ 133 ] 

e* o t t L 

DANIEl ZOBROSKY One of the hardest driving 
fullbacks m the South ia tins one hundred .nut ninety 
pound Powderly boy. Danny ia also an exceptionally 
good punter and blocker, in which rolea he sees plent) 
.it service. When an extra yard is needed d>r .1 first 
down <>r perhaps a touchdown, the assignment is always 
given to Zobrosky, ami .1 sigh of relief comes from the 

stands as he takes the ball. Danny lias played two 
splendid years of football tor 1 Inward, and he promises 
to climax Ins career next year in a blaze of glory. 


MATT COLLEY — Matt is one of a vanishing race at 
Howard, lor tackles right at the present are scarce. 
He is only a sophomore, but has much ability and 
promise as a player. Although he did not make the 
first st n 11c;. Matt saw a great deal of action and was 
scry valuable to the White boys in chalking up their 
four wins. ( olley certainly uses Ins six-loot, two hun- 
dred and ten pounds of muscle and bone to an advan- 
tage for the Bulldogs. 

I ARI GARTMAN — This one hundred and eighty pound 

halfback is rated as one of the best pass receivers in the 
Dixie Conference, a claim closely supported by his re- 
markable scoring record. "dart" is only a sophomore, 
but he performs like a veteran and grid tans will hear 
much of him before he hangs up his moleskins tor the 
last time. His ability is not limited to one position, 
but lie is also talented as a passer, blocker, and punter. 

TILLMAN GLADNEY — A big, rugged two hundrcJ 
pound center with a boundless enthusiasm for the game. 
He probably saw more action after his initial "baptism 
of fire" than any other man on the squad. Gladncy, the 
Number One center in every game, was always alert and 
aggressive, always carrying the tight to his opponent. 
The absence of this Hancevillc star will be felt severely 
next fall. 

KIMSI Y LAWK] \< I -Among the many fine qualities 
possessed by this ace performer arc those of rugged ness, 
swiftness, and endurance. Although only a sophomore, 
Kimsey participated in every engagement and was con- 
spicuous in the fray for his excellent tackling and block- 
ing. Because of the strenuousness of his pharmacy labs, 
I awrence will be absent from the squad next fall. He, 
tCO, will be greatly missed. 

VIRGI1 LEDBETTER— In his tirst campaign for How- 
ard, Virgil had been of no little assistance. He is long 
and rangy, and maneuvers his one hundred and ninety- 
five pounds remarkably lightning-like to block the punts 
and recover the fumbles of Ins opponents. I.cdbcttcr is 
also an excellent offense man and a good pass receiver. 
I cdhctter is from Walker County, more specifically, from 
I mpire. 

[ 134] 


■■ rt 


MARION PAYNK — Big and utterly fearless, there is 
nothing slow or lumbering about this two hundred and 
five pound tackle. "Buddy" is only a soph, but has 
done a most commendable job of holding down the left 
tackle position. . Payne started nearly evcrv game and 
played the duration of most of them. This Tarrant 
C'ty lad is certainly an exceptional blocker and a bul- 
wark on defense. 

JOHN RICHARDSON — This one hundred and ninety 
pounH native of I eroy performs his duties at center 
quietly but efficiently. In his first year with the 
Howard varsity John his proved his worth, for he has 
been a t're'ess arH HepenHab'e plaver throughout the 
season. Because of his aggressive, bulldog nature, he is 
being listed for first line duties on the Bulldog squad 
next year. 

JAMES SHARMAN — The unusual amount of ability- 
possessed by the Gopher was shown in flashes during his 
performance at his two positions, namely fullback and 
blocking back. Sharman is a consistent, hard-working 
lad who can be depended upon. Although he did not 
play regular during the past year, his husky presence on 
the bench was a comfort to his mates on the field. Next 
year Gopher will probably have a regular license to carry 
the mail. 

JAMES TARRANT — One of the greatest backs in the 
South, the North, the East, or the West, we nominate 
Tarrant for All-America. He not only has the national 
record for passes completed, but is also an elusive back. 
Although only a sophomore, Jim has gained national 
recognition for his uncanny ability to connect passes 
with receivers. He won All-Dixie honors and honorable 
mention for All-America. We salute one of the most 
capable sophomores to ever wear the Howard livery. 

ROBERT TAYLOR — In his premier year with the var- 
sity. Bob has won the stamp of approval of the coaches 
and of his teammates. He is a wingback, and in this 
department has distinguished himself for his fleetness, 
his initiative, and his ability to take hard blows. Taylor 
is from La Grange, Georgia, and contains excellent prom- 
ise of future service to the bulldog eleven. 

EMMETT TEMPLETON — One of the most capable re- 
serves on the entire squad, Templeton spent most of his 
time and talent at the fullback slot, where he distin- 
guished himself for his drive .uul versatility, He has 
the true requisites of an athlete, training hard, Mudyin", 
the fundamentals, and absorbing as much as possible oi 
his opponents' tricks for his own use. Templeton weighs 
one hundred and seventy-five pound] and comes from 
Lanett, Ala.

This year's crop of Bullpups under the 
tutorship of Coaches Jim Stuart and 
Lew Bostick chalked up an enviable 
record with two victories and only one 
loss. The 'Pups were very good all 
season — their spirit was dashing, and 
the roster contained a good list of 
hand-picked gridsters from the far 
corners of the state and three from 
other states. The season opened with 
a bang against the Baby Tide of Ala- 
bama. Success was almost in sight, but 
the Baby Wave scored two touch- 
downs in the closing minutes, due to 

superior reserves, and defeated the 
scrapping 'Pups 25-6. 

In the Crippled Children's Clinic 
Charity Game at Legion Field, an ap- 
proximate twelve thousand people saw 
the future Bulldogs come from behind 
to defeat the Panther Cubs by a score 
of 12-0. The Bullpups continued this 
fine brand of football and defeated the 
Baby Snakes of Chattanooga 12-0 in 
their final game of the season. There 
are a number of good varsity propsects 
on the squad and the coaches are ex- 
pecting plenty of action from the boys 
next fall.

Freshman basketball received excellent 
emphasis this season under the faithful 
coaching of Lew Bostick, former Uni- 
versity of Alabama grid star. The f rosh 
cage squad was unusually talented and 
well balanced, and produced ten vic- 
tories while suffering only one defeat. 
That defeat was the second game of a 
series of two with the Baby Tide, the 
first of which the Howard frosh won 
very decisively. 

Team work and coordination 
throughout the season had its begin- 
ning in the first game against Ensley 
High. Victory over the Ensley boys 

gave the 'Pups a taste of success that 
continued against St. Bernard Junior 
College twice, the Alabama freshmen, 
Bessemer Y.M.C.A., Walker County 
High, Ramsey High, Bessemer High 
twice, and Stockham Pipe Company. 
Almost every player on the team was a 
star in his own right. Wheeler Flem- 
ing led in scoring with ninety-one 
markers, closely followed by Deric Ed- 
gar's seventy-four points and several 
other unusually high scorers. This 
year's Bullpups will certainly be a val- 
uable addition to the varsity next sea-

Captains Eddie Welch and Kenny Morgan 
talk it over with Coach Jim 

It hit like a blitzkrieg in Causey Gym 
this year. Basketball spirit was ram- 
pant, and Coach Jim Stuart tutored 
the major cagers daily for the initial 
encounter with Mississippi State — a foe 
already looming large in the Southeast- 
ern Conference. A brilliant attack 
against State in Jackson, Mississippi, 
resulted in a one-point loss for the first 
game and 29-26 victory for Howard in 
the second encounter. 

A return to Causey Gym with 
Southwestern as a foe gave Captain 
Eddie Welch and the boys their first 
Dixie Conference victory. A similar 
encounter with Loyola brought the 
Bulldogs down in defeat, but only 
after they lagged in the final period to 
permit the New Orleanists to better 
their score by a margin of 3 5-30. 

Then came the annual tilt with the 
world famous Celtics, with the champs 
being hard pushed to earn a 43-41 grab 
of glory. After the game, the How- 
ardites began a disastrous road tour, 
first against Spring Hill who dribbled 
hard to snatch a 49-43 victory. This 
set-back was followed by the two try- 
ing reversals at the hands of the Naval 
Air Station in Pensacola, and to crown 
their bad fortune, the Bulldogs shortly 
were smeared again by the Wolves of 

Undiscouraged, the plucky bas- 
keteers returned again to home terri- 
tory and forced a closely contested loss

on Y.M.H.A., and filled with elation, 
proceded thence to an Armageddon 
with Chattanooga. Once more Coach 
Jim's machine began to function 
smoothly, resulting in triumphs over 
Spring Hill and the Moccasins. Then 
came the encounter with Auburn at 
the Auditorium. The A. P. I. cagers 
won, but Howard glowed with satis- 
faction at being able to hold the highly 
touted "Shag" Hawkins to his mini- 
mum of points for any game of the 

The season ended with a series of 
home games which netted Howard 

victories over Boys' Club, Y.M.H.A., 
and a divided triumph in two games 
with the Mercer Bears. A brilliant 
start in the Dixie Conference Tourna- 
ment gave Howard a triumph over 
Southwestern, but defeat at the hands 
of a militant quint of Mercer Bears. 

Yet defeat was not Howard's — not 
to a team of its character and training 
— not to a team that had fought the 
good fight, had kept the spirit, and had 
emerged victorious in fairness and 
sportsmanship if not in actual scores. 
Which is after all what counts the 
most, as the poet has expressed it.

VIRGIL LEDBETTER, One. Lanky Virgil hails 
from Dora, Ala. Was always excellent at guard- 
ing his man and at other defensive chores. Played 

his best game against Auburn, when he held Shag 
Hawkins to a minimum of markers. 

KENNETH BAKER, Two and Three. Kenny is 
from Cleveland, Ohio. Played four years in his 
home town before becoming a crack varsity forward 
here. His speed and endurance will make him a 
mainstay in next year's quint. 

DAVID DRAKE, Fowr. An Owen's Cross Roads 
product who is fast and furious when it comes to 
covering territory. David is a versatile center, heavy- 
built, but always reliable. 

EMMETT TEMPLETON, Five. Sophomore Temp 
is Lanett's contribution to the H;:ward cage arena. 
Temp is a very fast player, and shows amazing ac- 
curacy in his shots. 

KENNETH MORGAN, Six. Morgan is from 
Alabama City, and during his athletic career has 
proved a very valuable man on the hardwood. Mor- 
gan is as fast as lightning and never loses his head 
in the excitement of the game. 

JAMES TARRANT, Seven. Slinging Jimmy tried 
his hand at basketball this season for the first time. 
Was a huge success. He will give plenty of compe- 
tition to the veteran players next winter. 

EARL GARTMAN, Eight. "Tarrant City" Gart- 
man moved to the varsity this year to show that he 
was the man to watch those tricky dribbles. Earl 
is a sophomore who played a jam-up game all season. 

EDDIE WELCH, Nine. Aggressiveness is the 
word for Eddie Welch. Played three years for Phil- 
lip High, four for Howard, and will leave a place 
that will be hard to fill next year. We will miss 
him a lot.

The H Club is composed of all the

approval of the general body. Its 
purpose is to encourage good sports- 
manship on the part of the athletes 
and to give direction to their social 
activities. Once each year the club 
gives a dance, a colorful affair well 
attended by the balance of the stu-

Ir is with genuine regret that wc write finis to this volume of Entre 
Nous. It has been a great deal of pleasure as well as a great deal of 
work. We wish to take this opportunity to thank those who have done 
so much to make this edition possible. 

Our first expression of gratitude is to Mr. Robert Faeber of the Ala- 
bama Engraving Company. His profound knowledge of college annuals, 
accumulated over a period of years, was placed generously at our disposal. 
His keen understanding and jolly good nature were valuable assets at the 
planning table. 

We wish also to thank Mr. Orville Lawson for the splendid services 
rendered in guiding the annual through the plant of the Birmingham 
Printing Company; Mr. Johnny Walsh of Loveman, Joseph and Loeb, 
for the excellent photography he did for the class section; Paul Ander- 
son, student photographer, for his patience and perseverance in making 
the long delayed group pictures; and Professor John Rogers for the many 
fine pictures which he contributed. 

We are truly honored to have served you in the capacity that we 
have. Our sincere hope is that we have succeeded in pleasing you.

Many graduates of universities and colleges, and others who have 
attended colleges, realize that their higher education is only foundational. 
Some of them, through making applications for positions, have discovered 
that a general education is not enough. Modern business asks not only, 
"What do you know?" but "What can you do?" 

Many employers prefer college-trained young people. A Wheeler 
Secretarial training supplies the link between a college training and a 
good position. 

Wheeler has helped hundreds of college graduates to bridge the gap 
and find a market for their college education.
